«*HOW TO KNIT.** 



•o-^o. 



The necessary materials for knitting are either cotton, 
worsted, silk or thread, and knitting needles. 

Stockings and all knitting worked in rounds require four 
knitting needles, three of which are used for holding the 
stitches of the work, and the fourth to knit with. 

The casting on of stitches forms the beginning of knitting. 
It consists of loops formed around a knitting needle. Every 
loop will form a stitch. The number of stitches will deter- 
mine the width of the object which is to be knitted. 

There are five different ways of casting on stitches. For 
the casting on of stitches always unroll an end of the cotton 
long enough to work the stitches required, as this end is used 
in the formation of those stitches. 

No. 1. — Illustration No. 1 shows the 
position of the cotton, ready to cast on 
the first stitch. Place the cotton over 
the thumb and first finger of the left 
hand, in such a way as to have the end 
of cotton, which must be sufficiently 
long for the required number of stitches, 
fall from the thumb toward the palm of 
the hand. Hold this end and the other 
part of the cotton with the remaining 
fingers of the left hand. This same 
position of the cotton is used in illustrations 2 and 3. Take 
the needle with the right hand, place it over the cotton, 
between the thumb and the first finger, pass it under the 
cotton resting around the thumb, bring it upward ; then pass 
the needle downward, under the cotton resting on the first 
finger ; pass this loop through the loop around the thumb, 
withdraw the thumb from the loop ; pass the thumb under 
the end of the cotton, toward the palm of the hand ; draw this 
end in order to close tli^ stitch just formed. 




No. 1. Position to form thk 
first Cast on Stitch 



Xo. 2 — Casting on of Single Stitches. — Begin in the same 
manner as described in Xo. 1. and make 2 stitches. Then take 
up on the needle the loop which is around the thumb (see 
illustration 2), without withdrawing the thumb, insert the 
needle around the cotton marked o in illustration Xo. 2, from 
right to left, and draw it through loop a ; close this stitch as 
already directed in Xo. 1, by withdrawing the thumb from 
loop a and drawing the end of cotton. 




No. 2. Casting on of Single Stitches. 




No. 3. Casting on by Knitting. 



Xo. 3. — This casting on of stitches requires two needles. 
Form the first stitch in same manner as described in Xo. 1. 
Then, with the left hand, hold the needle on which this first 
-Mich is formed, pass the cotton over the first finger of the left 
band, take a needle with the right hand, and insert the point 
into the loop on the left needle, wind the cotton around the 
P'-int of the right needle, draw it through the loop, * insert the 
point of the h-ft needle into the loop just formed on the right 
needle, wind the cotton around the point of the right needle, 
draw it through the loop. Repeat from *. See illustration 3. 

No. i Thi Casting on of a New Row of Stitches. This 
casting on of stitches is generally employed in knitting with 
rated, which requires :i new casting on of stitches in the 
progress of the work, h is done by putting the worsted (see 
illustration No. 4) over the thumb of the Left hand, holding 
'I nd between the second and third fingers, * take up the 

rted around the thumb and lying toward the palm of the 
hand, bj inserting the needle from under the worsted in an 
upward direction (see illustration No. 1 1, w ithdraw the thumb 
from tli" loop, pasa the thumb nnder the end of worsted resl 



ing in the palm of the hand, and draw it to close the stitch. 
Hepeat from * 





No. 4. >"ew Casting on of Stitches. No - 5 - Casting on of Stitches 

leaving an Edge. 



Xo. 5. — The casting on of stitches illustrated in cut No. 5 
forms a narrow border after the first row has been knitted. In 
order to easily knit the first row, the casting on of stitches must 
be done on a pair of knitting needles. Unroll an end long 
enough for the required number of stitches. Double it. Fold 
this doubled end in half, insert the point of the needles into 
the fold, place on the first finger of the left hand the long end 
of the worsted which is among the short ends. Place the 
three short ends over the thumb. Hold all these ends with 
the second finger. Take on the needles the ends resting on 
the thumb (marked b in illustration), and insert them as shown 
in illustration Xo. 5. Then pass the needles through the loop 
on first finger, in the direction of the arrow, and pass this loop 
through the loop already formed on the needles, withdraw 
the thumb, close the stitch by drawing the three ends, which 
is done by passing the thumb under them. 

Xo. 6 — Double Casting on of Stitches. — The difference 
between this method of casting on and the preceding is, that 
every knot forms, each time, two loops instead of one, on the 
needle. The first knot must be formed in the same manner 
a- described in Xo. 5. In order to work the second knot, 
insert once more the needle into the loop of three ends which 



6 

rest on the thumb, marked a in 
illustration No. 6. The arrow, in 
same illustration, shows where 
to insert the needle and the di- 
rection it has to take. This done, 
insert the needle downward into 
loop b, and draw the latter 
through loop resting on the 
thumb, withdraw the thumb and 
close the knot. Every loop on 
tlie needle must be knitted sepa- 
rately at the lirst row.

Cut No. 7 illustrates plain knitting. This is the stitch 
ifiHT.-illy used in ordinary knitting. First, cast on the required 
number of stitches in one of the ways already described. This 
done, take in the left hand the needle on which are the loops.

such a manner as to have the cotton just under the right hand 
needle. Pull this cotton through the loop, withdraw the left 
hand needle from the loop, and the purled stitch is formed. 

How to Repair a Stitch which lias been Half Knitted, or 
Dropped while Knitting. — In knitting, one ought to be careful 
not to drop stitches or to form half stitches. The latter hap- 
pens when the thread thrown over the right hand needle has 
not been pulled through the loop of the left hand needle. To 
remedy this, while working the next round or row, take the 
thread which has been thrown over the needle from it, and 
pull it through the loop of the stitch. To repair a dropped 
stitch, insert the left needle into the stitch, gather all the 
threads on the right hand needle and pull them through the 
loop of the stitch, one after the other. 

To Increase. — There are two ways to increase. The first 
is, to knit both in the lower part of the stitch and also in the 
stitch itself. The second way is to bring the cotton forward 
round the end of the right needle, to the front ; this forms a 
loop on the right needle when the next stitch is knitted, and 
this extra loop is the made stitch. It is preferable to increase 
after the first manner in plain knitting, as this way of increas- 
ing is not so marked. The second manner is used in fancy 
knitting, as it leaves a little opening after the stitch is formed. 

To Slip a Stitch is to take a stitch off the left needle and 
to slip it on to the right needle without knitting. 

With any work knitted in rows, it is necessary that the 
first stitch of every row be worked as a slipped stitch. If it 
is a row of purl, the first stitch must be slipped off as if it 
were plain knitting ; if it is a row of plain knitting, slip the 
first stitch off as if it were purl knitting. 



How to Narrow. — The usual way of narrowing is to knit 
two stitches together, viz. : put the right needle through two 
of the loops on the left needle, and knit them as one stitch. 
Another method is to slip a stitch, knit one, and then with 
i he left needle cast the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch. 
When the narrowing is used to give a certain shape to the 
work, it is well to employ the first method when narrowing 
at the end of the round or row ; and the second method when 
narrowing at the beginning of it. 

Casting Off is done as follows : Knit two plain stitches, 
with the left needle throw the first stitch over the second, 
knit a third stitch, throw the second over the third, knit a 
fourth, throw the third over the fourth, and so on until the 
last stitch is worked. Pull the cotton through, and a knot is 
formed. 

The Joining of Ends in knitting ought never to be done 
by knotting them together. It maybe done so that no defect 
is visible on the right side of the work, by lapping them three 
indies together, and knitting five inches with doubled thread, 
Leaving the ends on the wrong side of the work. These ends 
ran then be neatly darned into the wrong side of the work. 

Lady's Stocking. 

To knit a stocking, attention must be given to the size of 
tin- knitting needles, which ought to correspond with the 
number of the material with which the stocking is to be 
knitted. It would be difficult to give the exact number of 
stitches necessary for any given size of stocking, as there is 
always ;i difference between the knitting of different persons, 
since some knil loosely, others very closely. It must be left 
to the judgment of the knitter to determine the exact number 
of stitches required for the Btocking i<> be knitted.

17th Round. — * Slip 1, knit 1, draw the slip stitch over 
the knitted stitch, make 1 ; repeat from * to end of round. 

18th to 34th Rounds, inclusive. — Knit plain. 

Then fold in half the piece knitted, so that the 17th round 
will form the edge of the border. 

Pick up on other knitting needles the stitches of the 1st 
round, i. e., the stitches cast on, and knit each of them with 
each stitch of the 34th round. This finishes the border. Thus, 
the lower edge of the border forms a fancy design of small 
scallops. Purl 3 rounds, knit plain 3 rounds, purl 3 rounds. 

Then knit plain until the leg of the stocking is twelve 
inches long. In the first round of this plain knitting begin 
the seam stitch, which ought to correspond with the last and 
first stitches cast on. This seam stitch is repeated in every 
third round. 

After the twelve inches have been knitted, narrow in the 
following round 1 stitch on each side of the seam. Knit 8 
rounds. Narrow 1 stitch on each side of seam. Knit 7 
rounds. Narrow, in manner already described. Knit 6 rounds. 
Narrow. Knit 5 rounds. * Narrow. Knit 4 rounds. Repeat 
20 times from * until 110 stitches and the 2 seam stitches are 
left on the needles. This done, knit plain 30 rounds. The 
knitting of the heel now begins. Divide the stitches by 
putting on 1 needle the 2 seam stitches and 28 stitches on 
each side of them. Thus, there will be upon this needle 58 
srirr-hes. Knit this needle, backward and forward, in rows, 
making the seam stitches as usual. 

When knitting backward, purl all these stitches. When 
knitting forward, knit plain all the stitches with exception 
•of the seam stitch, which must be purled. Always slip the 
first knitted stitch. Continue knitting until the flap is 44 rows 
long, counting each time across as 1 row. 

1st Row. — Now purl from the left hand side the 28 
stitches and the 2 seam stitches. Purl 2, knit 2 together, 
purl 1. Turn. 

2d Row. — Slip 1, 3 plain, 2 purl (seam stitches), 2 plain, 
knit 2 together, 1 plain. Turn. 

3d Row. — Slip> 1, purl 8 (including seam stitches), purl 2 
together, purl 1. Turn. 



10 

4th Row. — Slip 1, 4 plain, 2 purl (seam stitches), 3 plain,. 
knit 2 together, 1 plain. Turn. 

5th Row. — Slip 1, purl 10 (seam stitch included), purl 2 
together, purl 1. Turn. 

Continue to knit in this wise until the remaining stitches 
are gradually worked off. Then pick up the side stitches of 
this flap, which amount to 36 on each side, and the heel is 
formed. 

Knit the side stitches of the flap, "making 1" now 
and then, so as to make the number of stitches on each side 
of the heel amount to 40. 

Knit again in rounds. After every 2 rounds purl the 
flrst 2 stitches together, then the last 2 stitches together, of 
the heel stitches. Narrow in this manner 12 times. This 
done, the number of stitches in the whole round is reduced to 
110, i. e., to the original number before the beginning of the 
heel. Knit plain 50 rounds. Commence narrowing of toe as- 
follows: * knit 2 together, knit 8 plain. Repeat from * to 
end of round. Knit S rounds plain. * Knit 2 together, knit 
? plain. Repeat from * to end of round. Knit 7 rounds plain. 
Knit 2 together, knit 6 plain, knit 2 together, 6 plain, etc.. to

^lip ill.-.- stitches upon the silk thread with which the knit 
ting is done. Pass this silk once more through the stitches, 
then draw all the stitches together, by pulling the silk thread. 
Fasten the thread on the wrong side of the stocking.

Heels of Stockings. 

There are three other ways of knitting a stocking-heel, as 
illustrations 9, 10 and 11 show. In the directions for knitting 
these heels, the same number of stitches is taken as in the 
directions for knitting the heel of "lady's stocking," i. e., 28< 
stitches on each side of the 2 seam stitches, thus leaving 54 
for the front of the foot. 

Heel No. 9. — Knit 44 rows backward (purling) and for- 
ward (plain). While knitting these rows, make a seam stitch 
on each side of the flap. These 2 
seams must correspond with the 
seam in the center of the flap. 
See illustration Xo. 9. 

When the 44 rows have been 
knitted, the rounding of the heel 
begins. Knit from right hand 
side 19 stitches (including the 
side seam stitch), knit 2 togeth- 
er, knit 14 plain (center seam 
stitch inclusive), slip 1, knit 1 
plain, draw the slip stitch over 
the 1 plain. Knit 5 plain. Turn. 
Slip 1, purl 25. Turn. Slip 1, 
knit 3 plain, knit 2 together, knit 14 plain, slip 1, knit 1 plain r 
draw the slip stitch over the 1 plain, knit 5 plain. Turn. 
Slip 1, purl 25. 

Continue working thus to 
the end of cap, alternating 
every time each row in same- 
manner as described. When 
the heel is finished, 26 stitches 
muse remain on the needle. 

Heel No. 10.— This heel is 
knitted partly in rounds with 
the front of the foot, and part 
ly by itself in rows. Divide 
the stitches evenly on 4 nee- 
dles, and knit in rounds with 
a fifth needle, \fter every 2

knitting the rirst of the stitches belonging to the heel, and 
•• make I ** after having knitted them. Repeat this 13 times. 

This done, begin the cap of the heel. Put on a special 
needle the 1*2 middle stitches (6 on each side of the seam 
stitch), and knit these in rows, forward and backward, until 
1»'> rows have been worked. Narrow at the end of each of 
these rows, in knitting the last stitch of the row together with 
the first of the remaining stitches on the next needle, then 
knit the following stitch and turn. 

Knit If, lows more without narrowing, but at the end of 
each row knit 1 of the stitches remaining on the next needle, 
and then turn to knit the following row. 

When this is done, continue to knit in rows, and narrow 
again at t lie end of each row by knitting the last stitch of 
each row together with one of the remaining stitches on the 
nexl needle; then turn and knit the following row. When 
thf remaining stitches have all been narrowed into the heel, 
then begin to knil t he foot in rounds. 

Heel To. i L.— To work 
this heel, knit a flap of a 
good length in rows, back- 
ward and forward. Then 
put on a special needle the 
22 stitches in t In- center, 11 
on each side of the seam 
Stitch, and knit these in 
rows, backward and for- 
ward. Iii every plain row

To Renew the Heel and Sole of Stockings 
Knitted by Hand. 

Illustrations 15 to 18 show the manner of doing this. To 

renew the- heel of a stocking, first remove the damaged heel by 

cutting along the sides 

of the heel, at the end 

of the cap and at the 

beginning of the heel. 

Make even the stitches 

belonging to the p arts 

from which the heel has 

just been cut. Take 

np these stitches on 5 

needles, as illustrated in 

cut No. 15. Take up on 

2 needles the stitches be- 

longing i" the heel. Then 

take up the side stitches

The remaining stitches 

belong to the fifth nee- 
dle, thai is. those which will serve for the joining of the cap 

of ili»- heel. Then, with the stitches belonging to the heel, 

begin to knit the heel in rows, to 
and fro. But. at the end of 
every plain row, always knit 
the last stitch oftherow together

required length, then begin to knit the cap of the heel in the 
usual way, until the number of stitches corresponds to the 
number of stitches of the fifth needle. Join these 2 rows of 
stitches together, as illustrated in cut No. 16. This is done by 
darning. Take an end of the cotton long enough for this pur- 
pose, and pass it, by means of a darning needle, downward 
through the last stitch of the stocking, and through the first 
one of the stitches on the fifth needle, or upper row. Then 
pass it through the next 2 corresponding stitches of the cap 
of the heel. See illustration No. 17, which shows the needle 
inserted in the 2 stitches through 
which the cotton is to be drawn. 
Pass the needle through the next 
2 corresponding stitches of the 
upper row. in the same direction as 
is shown by the arrow in illustra- 
tion No. 17. From there * pass it 
through the last stitch, already 
worked, of the lower row, and through next stitch ; then 
through the next 2 corresponding stitches of the upper row. 
Slip every time the stitch from the knitting needle after hav- 
ing passed the cotton through them. Repeat from * until all 
the stitches of the 2 rows are joined to each other. When 

this is done, fasten the cotton 
on the wrong side of the stock- 
ing by drawing it through a few 
stitches. 

Illustration No. 17 repre- 
sents only a part of the joining, 
where the stitches are worked 
very loosely, in order that it 
might be copied more easily. 
Yet, while working, the stitches 
of the joining must be drawn to 
the same size as the knitted 
stitches, of the stocking, and in 
such a manner that the joining 
cannot be detected from the 
knitting.

to do this, a new heel must first be knitted to the stocking in. 
rhe usual way. When this is done, pick up the side stitches 
of the heel and begin to knit the sole in rows, to and fro, 1 row 
plain, the other purled. At the end of every plain row pick 
up the last stitch of the corresponding row of the old sole, and 
knit it together, plain, with the last stitcli of row just knitted. 
The same thing must be done at the end of every purled row, 
only purl the 2 stitches together instead of knitting them plain 
■ »gether. Always slip, plain, the first stitch of every row. 

The narrowing of the sole, on both sides, must be done 
just before knitting together the last stitcli of the row and 
the last stitcli of the corresponding row of the old sole. 

After the new sole has been knitted, turn the stocking on 
the wrong side ; cut off the old sole along both sides, yet leav- 
ing a strip of 4 stitches in width on each side. Lay eacli strip 
towards the front part of the foot. Unravel them. Smooth, 
down the ends formed by the unraveling, and fasten them to 
the stocking by darning over them lightly, so that this darn- 
in-- might not be seen on the right side of the stocking. Should 
tli t - stocking require a new toe to be knitted on, then unravel 
the old one, pick up the stitches and knit a new toe in rounds, 
in one of the ways already described in the book. 

How to Darn Stockings. 

The darning of a stocking can be done in different ways. 
The way most generally adopted is that of cross-work darn- 
ing, which looks x<'vy well when neatly worked. But the 
darning in imitation of the knitted stitch, although more tedi- 
ous, [g preferable; for, when ii is well worked, it cannot be 
told from ill-- knitting, excepl on the wrong side.

those of the lower row. Cut the dam- 
aged part through the middle. Fold 
each half back upon the inside of the 
stocking, where it will have to be 
trimmed and fastened. Work a foun- 
dation of threads across the opening, 
width-wise, inserting each thread into the second stitch from 
the edge of the opening, and making it correspond with every 
knitted row. See illustration No. 20. 

Then work on this foundation as follows : Place the darn- 
ing cotton at the left, pass the darning needle downward 
under the lowest of the threads of foundation, and pull gently 
the darning cotton, so as to form the half of a stitch. Work 
in same manner on the other foundation threads. After mak- 
ing the half stitcli upon the top thread of foundation, pass 
i lie needle through the nearest upper stitch of the stocking. 
Turn the work. Place the darning cotton towards the right- 
Pass the needle downward, under the top thread of founda- 
tion, draw the cotton lightly, and in this way the first whole 
sritch will be formed. Continue to work in same manner on 
the foundation threads, until the entire work is done. 

Illustrations 21 to 23 show a 
different way of imitating the 
knitted plain stitch in darning. 

To darn after this method, re- 
move the damaged part and pre- 
pare the oi^ening for foundation 
threads in same manner as already 
described in preceding number. 
Take for foundation thread a cot- 
ton finer than the one with which

as follows : 

Pass the darning needle through the upper 2 stitches, as 
shown in illustration No. 22, then pass it, in the direction of

of wool and knit it in with the next stitch, so that one half 
of it is at the front and the other half at the back of the 
work ; then one plain again, and put the half left at the 
back round to the front of the work, and continue this 
alternately to the end of the row. Knit one row plain 
again, then one row same as the second, and so on. 

The Carpet may be knitted in pieces of any size and 
sewn together. If the surface is not quite level cut it even 
afterwards. 

The best results are obtained by using Oriental Wool, 
Smyrna Cotton and designs manufactured expressly for the 
purpose and lately introduced into this market by Messrs. H. 
Taylor & Co., of Philadelphia. Rugs knitted from these 
materials are as beautiful and serviceable as the real Oriental 
Carpets, and, if well done, cannot be distinguished from 
them.
